Please contact me if you need further assistance. Thank you for your cooperation. This inspection began at 8:45am and concluded at 12:45pm.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-160-C
Description: Based on review of staff files the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to updated TB test/screenings. Evidence: Staff record #3 did not have a current TB test, as the one on file had expired as of 7/29/17. TB tests are to be renewed every 2 years for compliance.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A
Description: Based on review of staff records the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required related to proof of qualifications/education. Non-compliance with this standard was previously cited on 10/30/17, and therefore this is marked as a repeat violation. Evidence: Staff #1, hire date 2/12/18, did not have proof of education for the position held. Staff #3, hire date 7/2015, did not have proof of education for the position held. Staff #4, hire date 10/2006, did not have proof of education for the position held

Plan of Correction: Staff will be reminded again of the need of this document for record compliance. All files will be reviewed to determine current and future compliance.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B
Description: Based on review of the playgrounds the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to resilient surface depth. Evidence: On both playgrounds used by the children there was not adequate resilient surfacing depth under the swings, and at the slide exits as required by ASTM surfacing guidelines. The areas measured approximately 2 inches in depth.

Plan of Correction: Mulch has already been ordered and will arrive on 4-20-18. The mulch is scheduled to be spread this coming weekend. Staff will continue to remind administration as mulch depth lessens for continued compliance.


A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.

The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.

Virginia Quality is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system for early care and education facilities serving children ages birth through pre-K. Eligible child care facilities must be fully licensed, licensed exempt and a VDSS subsidy vendor, or a voluntary registered day home and a VDSS subsidy vendor. Only programs enrolled in Virginia Quality will display a rating. Virginia Quality contact information for your region is available at the following link Regional Contacts.
